It's Anderson's most carefully constrained, painstakingly overdesigned movie, yet also his most gushing and emotionally accessible.
April 14, 2014
Endlessly subjective to the kids' fantasy of the world around them, a memory in mind compacted from impressions half-glimpsed, Anderson confects and even perfects a headlong heaven's-to-Etsy esthetic, in hothouse glory.
August 3, 2013
Anderson's woodsy thought process... elicits a thorough batch of the rainy summer daydreams where most grand childhood adventures and romances are so often had: in heads and hearts, if not in flesh.
August 3, 2013
Wes Anderson remains trapped in the aquarium of his own imagination.
August 3, 2013
All the grounding you need comes from the performances of Hayward and Gilman as the young runaways. They seem to have internalized Anderson's wonky worldview completely.

It's Wes Anderson's dollhouse as a home for wayward boys. Turns out, it's a safe place for adults to hide as well.

The film is frequently funny, always elegant (or mock-elegant), and something that would make Humbert Humbert laugh all the way to his asylum.

Anderson delivers a magnificent blend of artistry, humor and emotional resonance.

To date my favorite Wes Anderson and I don't characterize myself as an Anderson fan.

It's doubtful this will win over any outright Anderson sceptics, but ... this is an exciting reaffirmation of talent.

Wes Anderson's darkest movie yet retains his whimsical sense of humour and Fantastic Mr Fox-styled absurdity.
January 27, 2013
One of the ten best films of 2012.

At its heart, Moonrise Kingdom is a sweet and surprising love story with a healthy twist of typically warped humour.
January 4, 2013
The Houston native and University of Texas graduate beautifully blends humor and pathos to create what's bound to be one of the best movies of the year.
January 4, 2013
People who enjoy being immersed in his singular vision won't be disappointed at all.
December 31, 2012
Anderson's manner becomes a second skin and essential to the script, making Moonrise Kingdom a most comfortable way to watch matters uncomfortable.
December 28, 2012
Easily among the best of [Anderson's] works, it's a technically marvelous film with spot-on performances, a gorgeously realized score, and impeccable production design.
December 17, 2012
In the summer of big, expensive superhero flicks, Moonrise Kingdom evokes awe, wonder and the magic of escapism in a much smaller and more precious way.
December 12, 2012
Another quirky comedy from Wes Anderson who is an acquired taste I have not acquired.
November 25, 2012
a farce of whimsical philosophical import
